|Acrilic Colors - The Garden [kahvi172] - Rubicante|
a guest artist this time, acrilic colors who hails from hungary. walking in the steps of nagz, colors creates some excellent melodies, addictive stances in the music and professional quality compositions on a level with many a commercial release. three tracks of delight.. this release marks the return of mp3 as a distribution format, all releases being released in both ogg and mp3. (for mp3 versions download the zip archive).
|Sektor - Iloe - [kahvi168] - Rubicante|
now then, what do we have for your listening pleasure? none other than an entire album of bulgarian electronic specialise sektor. as heard previously on kahvi, two releases are also exclusively available on Beatport.com through Kahvi. continuing with the same flowing melodical style, sektor creates an entire hour of audio treats, dark moods, calm and soothing vibes. a taste of bulgarian style by design...
|Workbench - Detour EP [kahvi171] - Rubicante|
another familiar face hailing from DI.FM, workbench is a lounge artist of the classical degree - easy to listen, easy to chill, detour ep takes you from more of a commercial lounge vibe to the underground ambient/chill area in a nicely paced style. one verging on the commercial in parts but well worth a listen as part of Kahvi's collection.
|MigloJE - Ayesteeyah [kahvi174] - Rubicante|
a very welcome return for the lithuanian maestro named MigloJE. this time around we have an ambient extravaganza. in Miglo's curious, quirky but extremely well produced style. the tracks form a live performance at a festival somewhere in Lithuania, written to complement old folklore and a special place (hence the names that I cant pronounce). playtime over 90 minutes. switch off the lights, close your eyes and dream.

|Polygon Ring / Stud / Kairaus - Colliderscope [kahvi167] - Rubicante|
an ep of special significance; small and perfectly formed.. featuring two artists that rarely release but when they do it's something special - Polygon Ring and Stud. Also, Kairaus, a new artist from Finland who I met at Assembly a couple of years ago has supplied two supplemental tracks which entwine and create the whole feeling of the ep. idm and ambient excellence is yours to beyond.
|Introspective - Gewesen EP [kahvi176] - Rubicante|
Introspective, Kahvi's long time ambient meister, makes a return to the fold. Gewesen (meaning 'what once was' in German) is an ep of progression; long drawn out passages of audible excellence, meandering across the ambient spectrum. the leaves in the rain, traditional arpeggios with an idm edge and undocumented, featuring a curious lead sound are a couple of highlights. an oh-so-cool ep to listen and relax.
|MigloJE - Linear Emotions [kahvi163] - Rubicante|
Our resident Lithuanian artist, migloJE, returns with some more enchanting and subtle sounds. similar to his previous ep released a few months ago on kahvi, linear emotions builds on more of the ambient side of things with amazing textures and a production quality on a par with 'the professionals'. Once again his chatter semi-glitch ideology makes an appearance, but for a ride with a difference give linear emotions a few listens, each time you'll find something refreshing and new.

|Alexey V - Above [kahvi170] - Rubicante|
the second of the alexey v ep's. above is in alexey's usual style (beat driven subtleness) yet has more emotion and feel to it than his previous offering. progressive and epic, sheer delight in its ambience. easy listening and enjoyable audio from russia.
|Nedavine - Finally Infinity EP [kahvi173] - Rubicante|
another guest artist, this time from the US. perhaps familar to some of you, nedavine creates good solid beats but with an abstract idm finish. some interesting harsh elements mixed in with more ambient polish creates a curious ep, a slight oddity but loads of variety, nonetheless an interesting addition to the collective. once again, mp3's are included in the zip file. enjoy!
